Ten word photo prompt time! Using the picture above, write a ten word story. You can have a title, but don’t go overboard.

OK, here’s mine:

Her youth silently stolen in the night, Anna plotted vengeance.

What a Wednesday

Standard

Today started off weirdly for me, mostly because of Twitter, which is clearly the root of many of my problems.

MANY.

And now I’m trying to get into the groove. Groove of what, I don’t know. On the plus side, I think the weather is evening out, which is good news for both me and my head.

Yesterday was not so.

Meanwhile I finally got a painting that’s started to annoy me off the wall, but now I need a replacement. I’ll have to work on that. Not an actual painting, that’s way above my pay grade, but replacement art. I have a photo from a very talented photographer I still need to frame, that could work.

Meanwhile it’s time to unshirk all those tasks I’ve been shirking. You know the type.

Hope you have a productive Wednesday.

To coffee or not to coffee

Standard

That is the question.

Whether ’tis better to be energized in the morning, but restless at night, and by restless, sleepless…

OK, that’s enough near-Shakespeare.

I really want the second cup of coffee. But last night I got a lot of sleep. A whole lot of sleep. Nearly eight hours of it.

Can you imagine?

So that was pretty cool. That won’t happen if I have more coffee. Decisions, Decisions.

It was one of those nights that felt like constant dreams, and in one of them, I was writing. Nearly two pages worth.

Did it have the courtesy to stick around when I woke up?

It did not.

I have no idea what I was even working on. Also, I may have been on a plane. At some point, I was on a spaceship, so I would think that would prove very inspiring.

Anyway, point is sleep is good, feeling antsy, not as good.

But that siren call of coffee.

Have a great Tuesday.

Mildly Monday

Standard

So this morning it was brightly sunny.

And then it rained.

And then it was sunny.

And now it’s cloudy but bright, possibly about to rain again.

Today has no idea what it wants to be. But we’re all like that sometimes, I guess the weather gets a turn too.

I had a weekend largely away from the interwebs, and I can’t say that I minded. I went to an art fair yesterday, out in the sunshine and the muddy, squishy fields.

Probably shouldn’t have worn my new shoes. Alas.

And here we are with a new week and a new perspective. Or sort of a new perspective. Maybe mostly the old perspective.

Hmm, it seems the weather’s mood is catching.

I hope you have the loveliest of Mondays.

#AccountaClub Friday meets #MAYkingItWork

Standard

So before there was an #AccountaClub, we had #MAYkingItWork, a follow-up to the A to Z Blogging Challenge and other April challenges where we picked one of those projects that is irking us, no matter the stage it’s in, and work on it during the month of May.

No pressure, no frizzled deadlines, just give it a go. That easy.

Fridays, like #AccountaClub, we check in.

For my #MAYkingItWork, I’m going to try to catch up on comments and visits, because I’ve been terrible. I will revisit something that needs a ton of editing and possibly get started on another idea.

How about you?

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Mirrored

Standard

(Photo by Tobias Bjørkli from Pexels)

So back to our ten word photo writing prompt! In exactly ten words, write a story about the above photo. You can have a title, just don’t go overboard.

Especially not into that water. It looks chilly.

OK, here’s mine:

She flipped the sea and sky, but no one noticed.

Whew.

Standard

So it’s May, and the A to Z Blogging Challenge is history. I didn’t to well this year, falling down on the visits, and I’m not sure if I’ll do it again next year.

But that is quite a way away, so we’ll see.

The blogging part went OK, I basically wrote mostly what I would have written anyway, given the mood, so that’s good.

It’s a quick one today, April felt long and short all at the same time, and while you’re missing me (how could you not be?) check out my books.
